Michael Jackson & Freddie Mercury Duets To Be Released

July 30, 2013

The late legendary rock and pop stars Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson will be posthumously releasing THREE new songs very soon according to Queen guitarist Brian May.

The songs were recorded 30 years ago at Jackson’s home studio in California and May revealed they had been granted permission back in 2011 by the Jackson family to go ahead and release the late singer’s recordings with Mercury. Speaking about the news, he said that it was: “exciting, challenging, emotionally taxing, but cool” and promised to have something “for folks to hear in a couple of months’ time” adding that he was having a “great time” working on the project.

This is an incredible prospect, certainly one to whet the appetite of millions of music fans the world over as these two artists were outstanding in their own right and commanded massive record sales and sold-out concerts. Both had strong personalities and left an indelible imprint of the music we hear today.

Despite their strong individual characters, Mercury and Jackson undeniably complimented one another (as is evident on the track There Must Be More To Life Than This).  It’s a beautiful duet but it was never officially released after being recorded back in 1983 (although Mercury later added the solo version to his Mr. Bad Guy album).

Both of these incredible artists were taken from us too soon. Mercury died at age 45 in 1991 from an AIDS-related illness and Jackson at age 50 on 25th June 2009 from the surgical anesthetic; propofol.  To say that we are blessed to still have the opportunity to experience new music from the pair would the understatement of the century.
